Default ASP - Design Strategy

I have several projects on my plate that requires web development. I have a few questions related to what approach to take in order to follow a uniformed path:

1. In case of several application within a specific area, should I place my applications in one project folder or split them up. Examample: Within are of Production, I have a Sales application and I have a Production application. My instinct tells me that I should create a project for each one.

2. If I create a project for each application, can I navigate using link buttons between one or more projects, if so how would I do that?

3. Can I create a Master Page that will be used in more that one project and reference the Master page in each project? If so, how would I do that

Thank you.

Master pages and user controls need to live in the project they will be used it. There are ways around this limitation using shared files in source control.

You'll have to evaluate how closely related the different applications are. You may find that putting them in a single web app will be easier to deal with in the long run.
